Track Biography:

The Limerick Foxhounds were formed in 1734 and have their kennels in Clonshire, Adare, Co. Limerick.

Point-to-points have been a large part of the hunts calendar for many years. The current Limerick race track was once under the ownership of the late Lord Harrington and staged our point-to-point for many years.

Many talented riders and horses have graduated from the Limerick Foxhounds point-to-point of which we hope to see this continuing in the years to come.

This will be our fourth year in Cragmore on the Costello’s Family land and is a terrific track which is always very well received. 

Grade 1 winner Death Duty won his four-year-old maiden here in 2015 and provided Derek O’Connor with his 1000th winner between the flags, making him the first point-to-point rider to ever achieve this remarkable milestone.
